A unique historical church in a beautiful Welsh border village situated right next to the castle ruins and River Monnow. Contains an example of a 500 year old medieval embroided cope (cape).

A pretty little church with a very long history. Not a great deal to see, so ten minutes or so will see you outside again.

A lovely looking building with church bells chiming every 15 minutes. The churchyard is well kept and the church itself if so quaint and lovely. Well worth a visit to see the Skenfirth Cope.

Must be one of the oldest Churches in the area dating back several centuries. Virtually next door to the castle ruin. Easy parking - well worth a visit

A peaceful atmosphere in this old church, with interesting artefacts including a Bishop's cope and interesting pulpit of St Bridget.

dating back in part to the early 13th Century. It is a border church so was built to be a place of refuge as well as a place to worship, hence the five feet thick walls and the dovecote roof where stores could be kept...More

Lovely medieval church next to Skenrith Castle. Its in a beautiful location and delightful to wander round for a quiet 15 mins. To be honest the exterior is more interesting than the interior but its well worth a visit
